Written by Arthur Harari, Vincent Poymiro and Agnès Feuvre, and based on an original idea by Olivier Seror and the director himself, the story revolves around Pier Ulmann, a man of around 30 who lives on his own in Paris. Upon his father's death, a tragic fate that he blames on his family of Antwerp diamond dealers, Pier returns among them with the secret intent of settling the score.

Produced by David Thion for Les Films Pelléas, Diamant noir is benefitting from co-productions by France 2 Cinéma, and Belgian outfits Savage Film and Frakas Productions. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+, Ciné+ and Telenet (Belgium), the film is also backed by an advance on receipts from the CNC, Eurimages, the Centre region and the Belgian tax shelter (Cinéfinances). The shoot, which will wrap on 16 September, will take place in Paris, the Centre region, Antwerp and Surat (India). Distribution in France will be handled by Ad Vitam and international sales by Films Distribution.

As previously reported, Les Films Pelléas will unveil Métamorphoses [+see also:
